Algoma house description

The Algoma Lake House is located on the scenic shores of Lake Michigan. This comfortable 1950's stone house has been updated with all the modern conveniences. The Lake House is located within walking distance to historic downtown Algoma and Cresent Beach featuring a romantic boardwalk along the crashing waves of Lake Michigan. Minutes away from Door County.

Upstairs at the Lake House sleeps 4 people. Featuring 2 bedrooms - one with a queen bed & TV and a second bedroom with 2 twin beds. A full master bath with jetted tub, large shower, and his' & her's sinks. Also upstairs, you can play billiards in the loft overlooking the great room and a spectacular view of Lake Michigan.

The main level includes 2 bedrooms sleeping 6 people, one with a full size bed and the other with 2 sets of bunk beds for the kids. A full bath is also located on the main floor.

The kitchen has all the modern conveniences: stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher & toaster oven. All cookware and servingware are provided along with wine glasses!

The main level also includes a quiet sitting room in the front of the house - great for reading; a dining room and a great room at the rear of the house with a window wall looking over the spacious back yard, patio and Lake Michigan.
Outside features a large stone patio with a firepit, patio table and chairs with outdoor speakers and gas grill. Sit and enjoy the perennial gardens while sipping a cold beverage.

The double wide driveway is large enough for 4 cars and a boat trailer. Motorcycles Welcome!

The Algoma Lake House would provide a fantastic venue for your next family reunion, family or guy's weekend of fishing or taking in a Packer game, wedding parties, girl's weekend especially during Lady's Fest or Wet Whistle Wine Fest. A great location to take a day trip north to visit the hustle & bustle of summer in Door County then come home to the relaxing beach and tranquil streets of Algoma.

A grocery store with Redbox and Subway are steps away if you're feeling like a low key evening at home. You can always call and have a pizza delivered, too!

Explore the Packer Hall of Fame, take in a Packer game at Lambeau Field. Definately take in the pre-game festivities & phenomenal tailgating and bar-hopping. Nobody knows how to party more than Packer fans on game day. Spend a day at the Lake House making memories. Enjoy the large spacious yard to throw around a Frisbee or football with your children, enjoy a cup of coffee with mom and dad while you stroll through the perennial gardens. Then at night enjoy smores as you sit on the patio enjoying the warm flames of the firepit. Any way you choose to spend your days at the Lake House, you are bound to leave with fantastic memories of warm summer days with your loved ones.
